The 120-seater chapel with its thatched roof, stained glass windows and bell tower was built with the input from historians. It’s a unique and beautiful space for special weddings, ceremonies of all kinds as well as for quiet reflection.


The Akira wedding venue, situated in the Day Visitors Centre, can accommodate up to 150 guests. It is abundant with African symbology, rich earthy colours and unique African décor focal points. This upstairs wedding venue opens up on to the Azima Restaurant and Enzi Bar which has a beautiful wooden deck with views over the Magaliesberg mountain range. It is ideal for pre-wedding drinks or entertainment.
